The workshop was led by post-doctoral researcher Anna Lührmann and V-Dem's analyst and data operations manager Valeriya Mechkova. Eight young researchers with none or little prior statistical experience participated in the training. The aim of the course was to strengthen the capacity and knowledge of quantitative democracy research among scholars in the Bibliotheca. The course enabled the participants to assess research conducted with statistical methods and use basic quantitative methods in their own research. By the end of the course, the participants were able to conduct statistical analysis using STATA (descriptive statistics and basic regression) and present their findings in figures and tables.
